Chrome is dominating the news this week in many ways with the announcement of release dates for Chrome OS, a new version of the Chrome Browser and Chromedeck which is a new Web App from the brand new Web Store. Lots to play with over the Christmas period as often is the case.
My new project starts – I am working on a new kind of blog and travel website, in fact it’s hard to pigeonhole right now and if I am being honest, good! I don’t like having to fit a category….
Journog is about photography and travel writing combined with geotagging.

What exactly is Brightkite I hear you say?
The idea is simple, it enables users to “check in” at the locaton they are currently located at. So lets say you have just walked into a cafe off of Tottenham Court Road in London, you can “check in” there and find out who is nearby and likewise people can see you – unless you are running in Private mode, in which case only “friends” can see where you are.
